As a huge fan of the Hush Hush series I have to admit I am disappointed with this book. So much so I almost gave it two stars but decided to be generous. This may sound harsh but the first half of the book was almost pointless. I can understand how others may feel differently but I just felt this book could have been written so much better than what it was. At this stage, although I will go onto to read the next book, I feel that Hush Hush would have been better off as a stand alone book, or this book should have been written differently and the series ended as a trilogy. Now it just feels like this series is being dragged on needlessly.
